I've had a De'Longhi ECP3420 for a few years and in the recent weeks it's started to develop a pressure problem. The espresso will pour for a few seconds and then starts to let out a drop at a time. I can audibly hear it struggling. I don't mind trying to buy the necessary parts to try repairing it myself. It is a relatively cheap machine, so does it make sense to put money into repairs or just upgrade and buy a new machine.

  • This seems to be more of an opinion-based question. Whether or not it's worth replacing is entirely up to you based on effort, money or otherwise. – Shiri Mar 19 '18 at 21:20

    I think the question revolves around the issue of whether the De'Longhi will keep falling apart and require more and more fixes. Or, after this fix, that the machine will keep working well for a while. – Mayo Mar 21 '18 at 13:10
